I don't normally look for an "expectant mothers" parking spot, but I do know that my grocery store has two. If they are open and its raining or I have my daughter I go for it but usually park in a regular spot. I mean, its awesome to have, but I also realize I don't HAVE to use it. Just a nice perk ;)
Anyway.... I had my daughter with me and saw that both spots were free and decided to use one. Why not! As I pulled in an elderly woman exited the store and made her way to the handy cap spot next to where I parked. I sat in my car for a second and got my purse organized then looked out the window to see the lady staring at me!
Like.... STINK EYE STARE!
I got out of the car, gave her a smile, got my daughter out, then opened the trunk to get out our bags.
"You know I waited to get into my car just to make sure you were actually pregnant. Too many of you young moms abuse that spot."
I looked up and replied, "Excuse me? I'm sorry did I do something wrong?"
"These spots are for those who NEEEEEEED them you know."
Me: "I completely agree! Its so nice that the store does this for expecting mothers. They really come in handy!"
She then rolled her eyes and proceeded to get into her car and stare at me as we made our way into the store.
So enjoy the spot while you can ladies! The old lady police is out there watching you!!!!!
